Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Kia Spectra Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My car went into a ditch. I can't start it now. The car looks fine. Just a little damage to the tire rim and hub cap. Can't figure out why it won't start. Is there a kill switch? If so can I bypass it so I can drive it to the shop?

Hi gigglzngrinz,

Thank you for the donation.

There is a fuel cut sensor at the rear of engine compartment. Reset it to see if it works.

Was vehicle flooded and did water get to the cabin?
